A Dare To Love: A Couple’s Retreat

photo(30)20140219-204657.jpgThe day of “Love”.  This year I spent my Valentine’s Day with 12 lovers.  I consider my self a lucky girl.  As the facilitator of this couple’s retreat,  we spent 2 days nestled in a quiet cabin in Helen, Ga.  The theme from the book “Love Dare”.  A 40 day challenge to practice unconditional love in various aspects of the couple’s real life situations.

Intimacy plays a very important role when it comes to loving another unconditionally.  So it was important for us t learn as a group but, to have a space to learn as a couple in private time. Activities as a group included DIY class, cooking, a trip to the winery,  candle light dinner.  It was necessary to separate the men and women.  Cigars and an open conversation with the husbands at a cozy cigar shop gave me a better perspective of their views on romance and sex.  My wives took the cake in a super early morning mini Seduction School lesson, lap dances, strutting in heels, and learning what it takes to build desire.  The evening Sex School session gave us an opportunity to introduce a few toys and tips to revamp the bedroom routine.  Plus, tips on making it happen regardless of mood and schedules.

Although, it was a lot of fun getting to know the group I cherished the one on one (usually late night) chats most of all.  The interesting part about this group was that they were honest with themselves on what the high and low points were in their relationship.  Not being afraid to pull me to the side for a little advice when needed.  The first step is definitely having a desire to do better for your mate.

I am grateful for meeting such a lovely group of loving wives and adoring husbands.  It is honorable that they cherish each other enough to take time away from their kids and careers in nu0rish and invest in their marriages.

XO, Harley

Behind Closed Doors with Ms. LaVelle

We present the beautiful Ms. Lavelle. . .This gorgeous super woman has taken School of Seduction by storm with her passion for being a mother and keeping her “Man” satisfied, all while writing an environmentally friendly curriculum for schools, and gaining herself another degree, all at the same time.

Six months after having twins, this diva enrolled in my Sexy Refresher course.  She quickly became my class funny girl, with her quick wit and quirky sayings.  She wanted to use the class as a tool to reinvent the sexy she once possessed.  Boy, she definitely achieved that and much more.  From not wearing makeup or wigs, to rocking the diva look every time I have seen her since.  She is the perfect example of my mission statement.

LaVelle was surely the most interesting to work with to produce this Boudoir shoot! Initially she had no vision of what her photos would look like.  On the day of the shoot, she not only had “vision” she had naughty lingerie to match. With a focus on her “alter ego” and the desires of her significant other she went from sweet to sultry with application of lashes and lipstick.

LaVelle brought her whole mommy crew to take class with her and they all did the photo shoot!  I love mommyhood, for wanting to bring sexy back!  Thank you LaVelle for allowing Marlene (Photog), Shanai, (MUA) and myself (Harley) to transform you in to a sexy Pinup!  We hope he loved each image.

Mrs. Sinnamon Boudoir

Introducing Mrs. Sinnamon. . .

A Love Note from Sinnamon:
What a wonderful experience I had with Harley and the other ladies of the Sexy Wife Refresher course !!!  I’m a military wife separated from my husband while he’s on deployment.  Packing and moving every few months left me feeling like just a worker bee and not anything someone would be interested in.  I wanted to take a class that would help me get my sexy back !!!  The classes not only helped me to embrace who I am (flaws and all) but gave me tips on how I could make my husband feel special too when he returns.   The decision to participate in the Boudoir Shoot was the icing on the cake.  I’ll be able to look back on my pictures and recall all the lessons I learned. Thank you for helping me to get back to my old self !!!

Behind Closed Doors with Harley: Valentine’s 2012

It Started with a Class.

How do I begin to tell you about my adventure on February 4, 2012?  For the sake of titles we will call it the Chocolate & Champagne Boudoir Marathon.(Atlanta, Ga). In case you were wondering how this Marathon works, put it this way we took 1 day, 6 naked (semi-naked) ladies, 1 fabulous room, 1 photographer, 1 makeup artist, and only 1 Harley, and produce what would become one of the most memorable moments of this group of wives and mommies lives.  This entire adventure started with a class at the School of Seduction’s. The  2-day “Wife Refresher Course” in Columbus, Ga is where  I had the pleasure of teaching 5 of the ladies participating in this boudoir shoot.   This group of wives went from for some shy, conservative, or just wanting to reinvent their sexy to their husband’s new super sexy girlfriend.  So, ideally the next step in reinventing their sexy was to get them in front of my favorite boudoir photographer’s–Marlene Lillian— lens.

First, there was the consultation to give the women tipping for preparing for their big day.  Two hours and a full belly later we were ready to build a look for Sexy.  It was time to do what we love most shop! Six ladies and a Harley took the mall by storm playing with thongs, lipstick, garters, infused uncontrollable silliness. I spent 6 hours assisting each lady with their visions for their photographs.  By night fall each lady had their arms filled with enough naughty unmentionables to last them a year in the bedroom.

Day of Shoot

After a week of texting and emails about filled with pre-shoot worries I was able to get 6 women feeling confident enough to make the hour and a half journey to one of Midtown Atlanta’s sexiest hotels.  Cars of to-be Victoria Secret models  flooded the valet. The mommy crew stepped out in jogging pants and t-shirts, with suitcases of wigs, lace nighties, and jewelry in tow.  Some ready, some frightened by the pending adventure that lay ahead.  We kept calm as we met the fabulous Shanai Dominique (makeup/hair) of SD Luxuri and the talented Marlene (photographer).

As the jitter increased the ladies started to assemble outfits with hairstyles, and stilettos.  The first lady was up for makeup, the lovely Alexia a.k.a. Mrs. Sinnamon (her Alter Ego).  As she began prepping, I spent the next 8 hours running from lady to lady fixing outfits, being her ultimate “hype” girl, pouring champagne, all while shouting “take that #%^* off, we here to get naked!”  By 8pm we had successfully gotten 6 of Columbus, Georgia’s finest down to their birthday suits. . .Valentine’s for their husband’s will never be the same.  These women went from wife to lap dancer to nude models.  Mission Complete!

Kiss Me Under the Berries

It’s that time of year already. . .the season for mistletoe.   You know that cute little piece of greenery, with the little white berries dangling from it.  For centuries the mistletoe has hung above doorways and ceilings during the Christmas holiday.   Just waiting for an unsuspecting lady to get caught under it, making her fair game for a smooch fest from any man catching her.  Sounds real romantic to me–if he was the object of my affection–but some stranger leaning in with a pucker, no.  He would get a kiss in the eye from my fist.  Hey, I’m just saying.  So, to save some faces I will plan my own kissing games, to keep the kisses flowing though out the Holiday season.  So let’s take a moment to brush up on our kissing game.

Harley’s 20 favorite kissing ideas:

1.  Red Light Special- When driving around town, steal kisses at every stop light.  So, take the long way home.

2.  Candid Kissing- Kiss in front of the camera in elevators or when standing near an ATM.  Someones’ always watching.

3.  Wet Kisses- Grab your rain boots and lover.  Enjoy the moment by splashing in puddles and  kissing until you are soaked.  Kissing in the rain. . .romantic.

4.  Sundae Smooches- Drag your lover into the kitchen, make a sexy lip sundae with sprinkles, whip cream,  chocolate, and a cherry to top it off right.  Take your time licking away the toppings!  Relish in the sweet kisses that will follow.

5.  Ice Kiss- While French kissing, pass a small piece of ice between your mouths.  Brrrr!

6.  French Kiss- Lean together into a simple kiss, open your mouths and touch tongues lightly. Enjoy the feeling of your tongues moving against each other. Important point – do not move too deeply into your partner’s mouth.

7.  POST-IT Kiss- Use Post-It notes to make a trail through your house that leads to your lips. Use your sexiest red lipstick to leave your kisses on each note with an arrow pointing to the next note. You, of course, are at the end of the trail with a Post-It note over your lips that says, “LIFT FOR KISS.”

8.  Nip Kiss- Instead of kissing with your lips, lean in close and gently bite your date’s lower lip, being very careful not to bite too hard.

9.  Breakfast in Bed Kisses- Sneak out of bed to make your love a special breakfast.  Use fruit and othe items you can easily feed your love.  Kiss between bites.

10.  Chocolate Kisses- Buy a bag of chocolate kisses.  Remove all the “Kiss” flags, put them in a mini box with the note “REDEEMABLE ANYTIME!

11.  Upside-Down Kiss (Spiderman Kiss)- Have your partner lie on their back or sit in a chair and lean their head back. Lean over and give them a kiss with your heads pointed the opposite direction (noses near each other’s chins).

12.  Butterfly Kiss- Get close to your partner and flutter your eyelids against their cheek, neck, lips, or nose.

13.  Mystery Kiss- Head to the local supermarket or candy shop and each pick out a bunch of flavors you like – this could be things like root beer barrels, toffee, grapes, strawberries, etc. (Jelly Belly’s work well). Don’t show each other what you bought. Take turns closing your eyes while your partner eats a bite and then gives you a French kiss. See if you can guess the flavor!

14.  Tease Kiss- Lean in until your lips barely graze each other’s and pull back slightly. Do this a few times, enjoying the feeling of your partner’s breath, before kissing.

15.  PDA Kiss- With a note or phone call, tell your love to meet you at a certain place and time (e.g. park bench, street corner, ice cream stand) for a present. When your love arrives, have a bow stuck to your lips.

16.  Goodbye Kiss- Send off your love in the morning with a quick kiss. As your love turns to leave, pull him or her back for a second, more passionate kiss.

17.  Ear Kiss- Whisper to your love how special he or she is to you, and then seal your message with an ear kiss!

18.  Hickey- Gently, but firmly suck on your partner’s skin until the area is pink or red. It may be best to do this in an area that can be covered by clothes.

19.  Shocking Kiss– Shuffle around the carpet until you build up an electric charge, lean in close until only your lips meet and give off a spark.

20.  Kiss on the Hand-Take your partner’s hand and give it a light kiss on the top or palm.

Happy Holidays!  Eat. Drink. Kiss!
